Topics: Sports betting Regions: US Oregon Oregon Lottery sportsbook launch could miss NFL kick-offcenter_img The Oregon State Lottery has insisted that “a smooth player experience” is the priority with its new sportsbook, even if it means the launch misses the start of the new NFL American football season.The lottery had previously planned for its mobile sportsbook to be up and running by the beginning of the new NFL campaign on September 5, with the second-phase retail offering to follow in early 2020.However, in response to a report that the schedule has been pushed back, with the retail offering now likely to launch in the middle of 2020, the lottery’s public information manager, Matt Shelby, told iGamingBusiness.com that the focus is on fine-tuning the product, rather than cutting corners.Read the full story on iGB North America.

The POD / Whiting Architects

Primarily designed from inside out for views & sun also conscience of creating very sculptural form; object in the landscape. Not to blend, but to sit in opposition, a manmade imposition. Removed all trace of archetypal house elements to produce a subtle blurring of the line between art and commerce.Save this picture!© Sharyn CairnsRecommended ProductsEnclosures / Double Skin FacadesAlucoilStructural Honeycomb Panels – LarcoreEnclosures / Double Skin FacadesFranken-SchotterFacade System –  LINEAEnclosures / Double Skin FacadesIsland Exterior FabricatorsCurtain Wall Facade SystemsEnclosures / Double Skin FacadesRodecaRound Facade at Omnisport Arena ApeldoornIs this freight or a house? utilise shade & shadow on form & natural light as a key feature maximise natural light & visual access, yet privacy is an issue.Minimise impact on landscape.  Break building into small component parts like stacked boxes. Use natural topography to advantage. The ‘Pod’ building is an anchor point for the site with crates in timber & concrete randomly stacked as if ready for loading and dispatch by sea.  Design came out of the need to overcome a difficult site; steep & split in 2 by an easement as well as to consider view sharing with adjoining owners & the need to gain elevation & frame views, like a perch or tree house.Save this picture!© Sharyn CairnsA small standalone custom-made 3 level building for a couples weekend stays low-maintenance, eating out, a place to relax & sleep with deck & short walk to town via the beachSave this picture!First Floor PlanWorking from inside-out was easy. Worked to make a place that worked beyond a ‘punch-line’ or ‘gimmick’, something with long-term gratification. A place that changes with the seasons & the time of day, a place to contemplate, unwind & enjoy. Platforms to enjoy magnificent views. Also had an obligation to create something remarkable when experienced from the outside-in, that reflected our client, his engineering and infrastructure background & what he does. A building with a little client self-expression. Simply; it works they love it. Enables then to arrive and inhabit the space effortlessly, a place to navigate to & fromSave this picture!© Sharyn CairnsIn an abstract secondary sense the built form reflects the client and his infrastructure building background. Location unlike typical housing site, steep, transversed by easements & tapering. More like a concrete hard-standing area at the bottom of a block left for industrial detritus, shipping containers, empty crates & sheets of sheet. Briefly glimpsed from The Great Ocean Road it becomes a landmark, a navigation or arrival point.  A simple collection of objects to inspire a second look, something to seek out and discover. A counterpoint to the open views of the ocean opposite. Needed achieve maximum elevation to frame views. Save this picture!© Sharyn CairnsStraightforward brief / long-term client & friend. Second Lorne house for them after successful completion of a number of residential & commercial projects. A lot of ‘shorthand’ and trust. Brief was collaboration, so was the build. Engineering by client, construction by their son (who we’ve had as a client & builder in his own right). Process punctuated by conversation & good diners. Never a cross word. Through trust, able to bring aspects that the client would not have imagined. They are delighted by the result & after so many projects together we can honestly say this one is spot-on.Save this picture!Ground Floor PlanWe take a holistic approach to the entire design process.  The exterior informs the interior.  The building is used as a self contained guest house attached to a main house for a large extended family of 3 generations. The owners were after a more relaxed feel in the ‘Pod’ than the main house so they could slip in and out on weekends with ease.  Neon stools punch out from a mostly neutral background and cooler tones reflect the concrete and timber inside/outside palate.Save this picture!© Sharyn CairnsClient expert in delivering tunnels under the Yarra and sections of Eastlink; confident we can deliver a well-managed cost-efficient outcome. Played to the client’s strengths, concrete / steel, infilled with lightweight construction clad in compressed cement dressed with straps to give a more 3 dimensional look and detract from standard sheet cladding look. Specialist steel and precast concrete components formed offsite then craned in created an instant platform for the lightweight infill & getting us instantly out of the very muddy ground.Save this picture!© Sharyn CairnsThe key was to work with the elements, sun, breezes, shade & shadow & get the orientation right.  Maintain maximum glass yet keep it sustainable by working with solar heat gain in winter to passively warm areas, offset by the ability to adjust by opening up the entire building to catch sea breezes & allow warm air to escape. Concrete has good thermal mass properties enabling us to build a combined wall & roof structure in the form of a box, prefabricate it & transport it to site as a completed element. The Building achieves a 6 star ratingProject gallerySee allShow less”Casa Futebol” Proposes a Different Olympic Legacy For Brazil’s StadiumsMiscModern Masters Of Materiality: An Interview With Australia’s Tonkin Zulaikha GreerArticles Share Area:  1000 m² Year Completion year of this architecture project CopyAbout this officeWhiting ArchitectsOfficeFollowProductsWoodGlassConcrete#TagsProjectsBuilt ProjectsSelected ProjectsResidential ArchitectureHousesLorneAustraliaPublished on July 10, 2014Cite: “The POD / Whiting Architects” 10 Jul 2014.

Whether it be boxing, darts or comedy, together they are helping to fund our pioneering research into the prevention, diagnosis and treatment of cancer.“There’s been amazing progress in the past few decades and more people are now surviving cancer than ever before. Thanks to research funded by supporters like Ultra Events, today 2 in 4 people survive – and our ambition is to accelerate progress so that within the next 20 years, this figure will reach 3 in 4.”  309 total views,  3 views today AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to TwitterTwitterShare to FacebookFacebookShare to LinkedInLinkedInShare to EmailEmailShare to WhatsAppWhatsAppShare to MessengerMessengerShare to MoreAddThis7 A little known boxing company is celebrating after raising £20m for Cancer Research UK.Ultra Events was started by former fitness trainer Jon Leonard, 38, at a gym in Derby after he came up with the idea of staging  ‘white collar’ boxing matches. His aim was to raise a few pounds for charity while giving complete novices the chance to experience what boxing is like first hand.In 2013, four years after Leonard started the organisation, he hit on the idea of partnering with Cancer Research UK. From that point on anyone looking to enter the ring was required to raise at least £50 for the charity. In return, as long as they sell tickets for the show and raise funds for Cancer Research UK, he offers them eight weeks of intensive training for their event free of charge.One of the organisation’s Ultra White Collar Boxing shows staged in London in May this year raised £76,368 in a single night, becoming its biggest fundraising show so far. Ultra Events is now aiming to reach the £25m milestone.Last year the company staged more than 400 boxing across Britain in locations from Exeter to Inverness. So far almost 60,000 people have taken part in events organised by Ultra Events, which has now also added mixed martial arts, ballroom dancing, comedy, darts and Himalayan treks to its portfolio.Leonard said: “Reaching £20million makes me realise that partnering with Cancer Research UK was probably the best day’s work I’ve ever done. We were staging shows and raising money for various charities but once we teamed up with Cancer Research UK it gave us all a real focus, a real direction.“Cancer is a brutal disease and it touches so many lives. The idea first hit me while I was standing on the stage to help warm up the runners at a “Race for Life” in my hometown of Derby. “A cancer surgeon came on and he asked all the women taking part to shake hands with the person to the left and right of them then said statistically, one in three of you will get cancer. That figure has now risen to one in two people. It was back then that I made the decision that I had to play my part in fighting this terrible disease.”Simon Ledsham, Director of Communities at Cancer Research UK, said: Advertisement About Melanie May Melanie May is a journalist and copywriter specialising in writing both for and about the charity and marketing services sectors since 2001.

Lewis. Texas Transportation Commission. WhatsApp Pinterest Texas Transportation Commission member and former chairman Tryon Lewis has resigned from his post.Lewis, who is also an attorney, former district judge and state representative, served for seven years in the Texas Legislature and three years on the Transportation Commission. He was chairman for two and a half years before being replaced by J. Bruce Bugg Jr. of San Antonio.Lewis said his resignation was effective as of 5 p.m. Thursday.TxDOT is governed by the five-member Texas Transportation Commission and an executive director selected by the commission. Commission members serve overlapping six-year terms and are appointed by the governor with the advice and consent of the Texas Senate, the Texas Transportation Commission website said.“I served for about 10 years going back and forth to Austin,” Lewis said.He did not run for reelection to the legislature with the idea that he would spend more time with his law practice at Atkins, Hollmann, Jones, Peacock, Lewis & Lyon Inc. And if permission was granted, he would serve as a senior judge and be able to try cases on assignment.That plan was interrupted when the governor called and asked Lewis to serve on the Transportation Commission. “The governor is a very hard person to say no to,” he said.He said he wasn’t expecting to serve the entire six years as chairman.Lewis said he got through a restructuring of the Texas Department of Transportation and the sunset process and restoring credibility with the legislature while he was chair.He added that Bugg has a background in finance which is needed more now.Lewis said he feels no resentment about being replaced as chairman.“I think I did a good job. It all worked out well,” he said.Lewis said he felt now was a good time to step away. He noted that being on the Transportation Commission is an intense job involving a lot of travel and frequent meetings and events.Lewis said he loved being in the legislature and on the commission and admired the people he met at TxDOT.More Information Hawaiian Roll Ham SlidersSlap Your Mama It’s So Delicious Southern Squash CasseroleCreamy Fruit SaladPowered By 10 Sec Croissant Breakfast Sandwich Casserole NextStay Twitter Local NewsGovernment Tryon Lewis steps down from Transportation Commission Twitter By admin – February 2, 2018 Pinterest Home Local News Government Tryon Lewis steps down from Transportation Commission Tryon Lewis poses for a portrait in 2016 at his office at the Chase Bank Building.

New year, same superstitions being followed

Posted on by

first_img Book Nook to reopen Beware of a man with painted toenails and never put too much stock in the words of three sisters, who claim to be just out shopping.That’s probably good advice for most any situation but, not when picking brains about New Year’s Day superstitions. Then, it’s time to throw caution to the wind and just listen to what they have to say.Johnny Garrett, his wife, Patricia, and her sisters, Mary P. Adams and Shirley Drosky and brother, John Parish, and his wife, Sue, put their heads together and came up with a bushel basket of superstitions that have been handed down through the generations. Email the author New year, same superstitions being followed “Mama always said don’t do washing on New Year’s Day or you’ll be washing the clothes of dead folks,” Drosky said. “Mama also said you don’t sew on New Year’s or you’ll sew the clothes of dead folks. I don’t know why you’d need to sew the clothes of dead folks.”Adams said to make sure that you’ll have money coming in all year long, you should bury your money under the doorsteps or somewhere outside before New Year’s Day.“On New Year’s you dig the money up and carry it in the house,” Adams said. “Then, you’ll have money coming in all year long.”Superstition also says if you take something out of the house, you should bring something back in so you’ll have something coming in throughout the year.

Patricia Garrett said house cleaning should be done before New Year’s Day.“You need to put away the mops, brooms and dustpans because, if you sweep or dust on New Year’s, your fortune will be swept away.”As for fortunes, the first person one meets and the first words heard determine the fortunes for the year. And, the first person to enter a house on New Year’s should be a man. Shoo women away if the try to come in the house first. A woman brings in bad luck.And, don’t use knives or scissors as they could cut off your fortune.It’s lucky to see or hear songbirds on New Year’s Day. Red birds bring especially good luck.John and Sue Parish said eating black-eyed peas guarantee pocket money throughout the year and eating collards and turnips put green money in the wallet. Eating pork will bring good fortune because a pig always roots forward and you’ll move forward in the New Year. But don’t eat chicken on New Year’s or you’ll be scratching in the dirt in an effort to make ends meet.Eating 12 grapes when the clock strikes midnight on New Year’s Eve, one for each month, will bring good luck all year long.Crying on New Year’s is taboo. Those who cry on New Year’s Day will be unhappy all year long.So, with football bowl games set for New Year’s Day, this superstition should be given careful consideration, the Garrett/Parish clan said. Crying over the loss of a favorite team could set off 12 months of pouting.Open the doors and windows at midnight on New Year’s Eve to let the Old Year out and the New Year in.Drosky said kissing a midnight on New Year’s Eve means you will be treated with sweet affection all year long. So, if you are home alone on New Year’s Eve, kiss your dog or you cat. That works just as well, she said.For those who don’t believe in New Year’s superstitions and don’t follow the advice of past generations, the Garrett/Parish family suggests sleeping with a horseshoe under your pillow for good luck – just in case.
